The prequel to the award-winning international bestseller The Murderer's Ape
'Beautiful and engrossing... with a zing of poetic justice' - Observer
Deep in the African rainforest, in the midst of a tropical storm, a gorilla is born - a gorilla like no other.
This is the story of that gorilla's fantastic voyage across the world, from the Congolese jungle to the grand bazaar of Istanbul, from Borneo to London, Singapore and beyond. The story of a mysterious jewel thief and a sad sailor with a heart of gold. A story of friendship and adventure on the high seas.
This is the story of Sally Jones.
